The Soldier's Sanctuary
Statement of Faith
We believe that Jesus Christ is our only hope of salvation.
His resurrection from the dead is all the proof we need. There is no other way to Heaven.
John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Remember, It is never a matter of losing one's salvation, it is a matter of being saved in the first place.
There is none good but Christ,
Psalm 14:1 The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.
It is in Christ alone we become "good."
How? By faith.
Ephesians 2:8 KJV For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
We believe in full water submersion baptism as the next step of obedience after becoming a Born Again Christian by faith as commanded by Jesus in John 3.
Acts 8:35-39 Then Philip opened his mouth, and began at the same scripture, and preached unto him Jesus. And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized? And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest.
Romans 10:9-10 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. And he commanded the chariot to stand still: and they went down both into the water, both Philip and the eunuch; and he baptized him. And when they were come up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught away Philip, that the eunuch saw him no more: and he went on his way rejoicing.
The focus of our gatherings are not for personal entertainment. We sing, pray, read, preach, and worship together all in a language that everyone can understand. We happen to speak English.
Colossians 3:16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
1 Corinthians 14:19 Yet in the church I had rather speak five words with my understanding, that by my voice I might teach others also, than ten thousand words in an unknown tongue.
1 Thessalonians 5:17 Pray without ceasing.
Mark 11:17 KJV And he taught, saying unto them, Is it not written, My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? but ye have made it a den of thieves.
2 Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
Hebrews 4:12 KJV For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
If you want to lead, learn how to serve. Don't get wrapped up in a title. Toilet Paper is worth more than the religious titles of men. We lead and work together as a team.
Matthew 23:10-11 Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ. But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant.
LORD'S SUPPER (COMMUNION)
1 Corinthians 11
We do not believe that our church should have any debt.
Romans 13:8 KJV Owe no man any thing…
It should definitely support pure religion. Do not confuse commercial and corporate Christianity with New Testament Christianity.
2 Corinthians 9:7 Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.
James 1:27 Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.

To sum it all up, we are LIGHTFIGHTERS!
